A Washington cat walks into a shipping container. Over a week and 2,500 miles later, he’s in Kenai. 

It’s a story that could have ended in tragedy. But it didn’t, thanks in part to the help of some local businesses and the magic of social media.

Panda, a tuxedo cat, went missing from his home in Thurston County, Wash., Oct. 13. His owners, Christina and Josh Clevenger, had been searching their neighborhood and posting in Facebook groups for over a week when they were on the verge of giving up the search.
